First Caveat – Not part of a healthy diet plan, but a devilishly good indulgence every once in a while – After all, it is the weekend – so indulge
Prep time – 10 time, actual making time -20 minutes
1 cup of Besan ( or chickpea flour)
1 cup of rice flour
1 big red onion finely chopped
1/2 finger length pice of ginger finely chopped
4 finely chopped green chillies
1 pinch of asafoetida
3-4 pinched curry leaves
salt 1-1/2 teaspoons ( taste batter before adding more)
1 tablespoon of butter
2 cups of oil to fry them in
I hate to mix the onions raw into the batter – so I fry it lightly in 1 table spoon of olive oil and then add them to the flours. knead the onions into the flour after adding the other ingredients – melt the table spoon of butter and add to the mix and knead some more – my trick is to add very little water – The end result should be that the batter should be loose, and somewhat dry and textured not soggy.
Heat oil; start adding the batter in loose balls into the oil; fry until golden; finished product should look crunchy, edgy and mouth-watering. Again, I will post pictures of these when i make them next.
Secret tip: None sorry!
